Charging the Power Source

Because the M.O.L.E. Profiler is powered by a rechargeable power source, it is important that it is charged and operating properly prior to performing every experiment.


To charge the battery:

1)Slide the female plug on the USB-Female Power cable into the Male Male connector located the below the On/Off Power Switch on the PTP® TX that is marked with a "P".
2)Plug the USB connector end into a USB Port on the computer. Any standard USB power source works provided it sources up to 0.5 amp at 5 VDC.



A completely discharged battery takes about 2 hours to be fully charged. Once charged the battery will last up to 4 hours of continuous data collection.

Important Information

The battery can be charged continuously whenever the PTP® TX is not being used, however, if it is going to sit idle for five days or more, is should be removed from the charger.
